I like this product but dont use as much as I would because I dont like applying it. Its in a tin like shoe polish so you have to really jam your figers in to get it so it gets under your nails. Takes some work to get it off your hands afterwards. I use at bedtime with socks and tiptoe if I get up because it soaks through. But my heels aee nice and soft in the morning! Would use it more if it were in a tube so application was easier.

A little messy but it works great!
Purchased

I have hobbit feet so I was accepting any form of help I could get. This stuff is a little greasy but slap on a pair of socks before bed and you're good to go. After a couple nights I'm already noticing that I'll be "flip flops in public" bound in no time.

Helps for mild dried out feet.

As many of the other reviewers mentioned, the oily texture is an issue - it is messier and slower to dry than regular old vaseline. However, if i sit still for at least 15 minutes while keeping my feet up, (and my mind obviously otherwise occupied!) My only complaint is the applicator issue - I don't have any surgical gloves laying around, and it can tend to get evreywhere. Fast. Including a small aplicator (brush, superzie q-tip, etc.,) with the first purchase, and then allow us to buy more refills as we go along. Other than that, this is the first salve where I have actually see (and felt) a difference in the roughness of my feet. Now I'm not too shy to go get a pedicure! Will definitely buy again, and buy one for my mother as well. Oh, and the peppermine smell is relaxing and a nice touch, not overpowering at all

I REALLY like this product! It makes your feet smooth and they look really soft! So heres the thing the first time i used it i didn't realize how oily it was , but that can be felt with by just putting the product on and sitting in a chair with a foot rest or something for a few moments!:) I read or watch a show while i wait!!!!

Smooth
Purchased

I received a sample of the J.R. Watkins for hands recently as a sample. I liked it so well, I ordered a full size of this. It smells so wonderful. It makes my feet feel smoother and refreshed. The salve itself feels kind of different than a lotion or a cream; but, I love the way it feels once it is rubbed in on my feet. I love this brand so much I also bought the Aloe/Tea and Lavender for the hands! This is going to be one of my go to products from now on!

Good so far
Purchased

This stuff smells great and I like that its not a lotion because I've never been a fan of using lotions lol I do apply it with a paper towel because it is kinda greasy and if I do that it keeps me from having to wash my hands after. I don't have dry feet but I do get allot of big callouses because I work on my feet and I go barefoot allot as my boyfriend says I have gross manly feet lol You can defiantly feel a nice tingle when you apply it and it seems to be softening up my callouses so that's a plus for both of us and it keeps me from having to sand my feet as much

good foot balm but...
Purchased

i really like this product and i think my feet do as well. only problem is application. its like a thin, minty petroleum jelly and goes on easy but you have to scoop it out of the can like paste wax. then you have to wash your hands. a good applicator would be welcome. i will buy again.

Effective, but not miraculous
Purchased

I have used this product twice now. Do my feet feel better, YES. Are they incredibly soft, NO. Will I keep using it, YES. Let's face it, after the horrible winter the Northeast suffered (which is where I live), my skin's condition is horrible, nothing could keep the effects of bitter cold and forced hot air heating at bay. Add to that, I work on my feet, and that means my feet were in horrendous shape. I use my Amope Pedi-Perfect when I can, which gets rid of that "reptilian" look and feel of my feet, but that doesn't hydrate them. This salve works towards better appearance as well, but I still don't feel my feet are overly hydrated. That said, they do feel better than if I hadn't used it and I will continue to use this salve until I find something better.

nice smell

its got a nice smell and all that, not sure how great it works but i havent been using it every day. I dont see why you cant use this for any body part looking at the ingredients.

Sweet feet.
Purchased

It smells delicious. It makes feet feel noticeably softer. But the best part is the tingling sensation. It feels so good on tired, sore feet. Just don't touch your eyeballs after application. Recommend!
